II. The Children of the Night
12. Boston
  
MY northern pines are good enough for me,
But there’s a town my memory uprears—
A town that always like a friend appears,
And always in the sunrise by the sea.
And over it, somehow, there seems to be        5
A downward flash of something new and fierce,
That ever strives to clear, but never clears
The dimness of a charmed antiquity.
